New Card Added: The Advanta Platinum with Rewards Customized BusinessCard

Advanta Business Credit Cards
Advanta Business Credit Cards
We've just added the Advanta Platinum with Rewards Customized BusinessCard to the list of card we recommend at this website. We like this card a lot, not only because it's cool, but also because it comes with some very competitive terms and conditions.

Why is this card cool? Because, as far as we know, it's the only business credit card in the American market that you can customize with your own logo or a favorite image, and/or have your company name emblazoned with bold lettering at the top of the card.

If you want to transfer a balance to this card, you'll have to pay a balance transfer fee, but this downside is very well balanced with the upside of a 0% introductory APR on balance transfers for 15 months. Very competitive indeed.

And that's not all. The APR on purchases is a very competitive Prime + 0.24%. Now, it should be noted that the purchase APR cannot go lower than 7.75%, no matter how low the Prime Rate falls (Prime is currently at 5.25%, and is likely to be cut again on April 30.) A Clip from the terms and conditions:

...Your account rate for Purchases will be Prime plus a Purchase Margin of 0.24%...Your Variable Rate Index for any billing cycle will be chosen by us from among the Prime Rates published in The Wall Street Journal's "Money Rates" section during the three (3) months prior to the month which contains that cycle's Billing Cycle Closing Date, but will not be less than 7.75%...

Bottom line: despite these somewhat convoluted APR terms for purchases, the introductory and purchase APR's associated with this card are still excellent.

Other powerful features of this card:

  • Choice of 5% Cash Back or Travel Rewards

  • No Annual Fee
  • No Limit on the Total Rewards you can earn

  • $0 Fraud Liability

If you end up with this card in your wallet, feel free to revisit this blog entry and post your comments here. Thanks!
